I live in Chicago, which has an excellent public transportation system, on which millions of people depend every day. It's one of the best in the country, and it's hard to find a place that isn't within four blocks of a relatively safe and clean bus or train, all of which interconnect seamlessly.
Yet what do I hear everyday? Complaints about the CTA. It's a truly thankless task to build, maintain and run such a system, but this film made me stop and give thanks for something I take for granted every day.
Until this morning, that is, when I waited 25 minutes for the bus, while watching seven of them go by the other way...

As much as I love mass transit, I have to admit that any sufficiently advanced transit system is occasionally indistinguishable from sadism.
